This book is a collection of 18 amazing stories of God's work
in Ethiopia in the mid to late 1900s through the ministry of Dick
and Vida McLellan. The stories will keep you on the edge of your
seat with bated breath as you encounter witchdoctors, angry mobs,
armed tribesmen, corrupt officials, and harrowing escapes. Each
story clearly outlines the hand of God in the lives of the missionaries
and their co-workers.
Dick and Vida McLellan became missionaries to Ethiopia in the
late 1950s and stayed there for over 30 years throughout Ethiopia's
troubled history of communism and hostility to the Gospel. The
power of God was undeniable in the things they witnessed during
their time there. These stories will challenge your faith, grow
your vision of God, and spark a flame in your heart for those who
haven't heard the Gospel. Watch as witchdoctors raise two hands
in the air and proclaim, "With this hand I renounce the devil and
all his works! With this hand I surrender to Jesus Christ! All
that I have and all that I am!"
This book is written for children, and care is taken to be tasteful in the
telling of the sensitive stories. However, the stories are full of intrigue,
hair-raising encounters, and adventure. Truly the work of the cross is never
boring. For any family who wants to raise world-changers, this book should
be added to their repertoire. A study guide is included in the back of the
book with discussion questions for each story and Scripture references.
